As fans of the manga would know, Togashi went on break after completing chapter 360 because of constant pain in his lower back.
Later on to add to our disappointment, the seemed to condition worsen, and as a result we didn’t see any more chapters throughout 2016.
As a result there has been speculation that Togashi may be replaced, but there are some reports that he has now in fact returned to his manga duties, though this is still not completely confirmed.
According to Ecumenical News, Togashi was spotted at an anime festival recently, with him conversing with many fans and other artists.
As a result this has raised speculation that his health has in fact improved and so according to Ecumenical News, we can hope to see chapter 361 in the works soon.
For now this is unconfirmed however, one thing we do know is that there is a deadline for more content to be released early this year, with that and Togashi’s health looking improved, we should expect more content to be underway shortly.
